Highlights of the day..

Maintain the Meditative State

 

The attitude at the moment of conception matters a lot. But the act is so overpowering that you forget everything at that moment. At that time, even God is in the background. That awareness has to be in-built, it has to be developed in you from early childhood. And that is the purpose of the meditative state, where you maintain the condition gained out of meditation all throughout the day. Whether you’re playing, studying, dancing, sleeping or taking food, that state has to be maintained and it has to become effortless from very early in your life. This effortless meditative state then becomes vital later on in life, in whatever you do, whether you are engaged in conceiving a child or doing your business.

Daaji went for his walk at 6.30 a.m. and spent some time inspecting the health of the plants.


 

The morning was busy with meetings. Around 8.45 a.m. Daaji met up with Madhu Kothapalli to discuss a few projects. This was followed by a meeting with Elizabeth Denley and Balaji Iyer regarding the Heartfulness magazine and some new initiatives. Later Daaji was joined by V. Ramakanth and Ashok Bhargava, an architect from Indore, to discuss the Omkareshwar project and other forest development activities.


 

At 5.40 p.m. Pullela Gopichand and Chenraj Roychand (founder of the Jain Group and Chancellor – Jain University), along with a friend, met Daaji. There was a discussion on various aspects pertaining to students, including the health hazards of electromagnetic radiation and ways to divert the children from being addicted to gadgets. 

 

Daaji referred to scientific experiments and research conducted over the last decade, which show that prolonged exposure to mobile phones and any other device producing electromagnetic radiation adversely affects red blood cells. He recollected his Guruji’s saying that every cell has its own brain, and mentioned that it is this intelligence in the membrane of each cell that allows certain things and stops other things from entering.

 

Daaji then suggested his guests involve students in experiments that show the effect of our feelings and thoughts on the life around us. As an example, he mentioned the study where a few plants were spoken softly to and treated with love, while another set of plants was addressed rudely. He suggested children conduct this experiment and observe how the plants grow in each case. 

 

The topic then shifted to conception. Daaji said, “The attitude at the moment of conception matters a lot. But the act is so overpowering that you forget everything in that moment. At that time, even God is in the background. That awareness has to be in-built, it has to be developed in you from early childhood. And that is the purpose of the meditative state, where you maintain the condition gained out of meditation all throughout the day. Whether you’re playing, studying, dancing, sleeping or taking food, that state has to be maintained and it has to become effortless from very early in your life. This effortless meditative state then becomes vital later on in life, in whatever you do, whether you are engaged in conceiving a child or doing your business.”

 


 

At 6.24 p.m. Daaji conducted meditation. After meditation, which lasted about 20 minutes, other guests took leave while Daaji continued on a walk with Gopichand. On the way, he showed him showed some interesting plants and explained their details. 


 

Around 7.20 p.m. A.S. Rajan, IPS and Director of the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy, joined Daaji and Gopichand in their walk. Daaji conducted another meditation session, from 7.33 p.m. to 7.50 p.m, and later had dinner with both the guests.
